Must buy lenses for Nikon D5200. Amateur filmmaker, any help is appreciated?
Hello there! I've recently gone out and bought the D5200 with the intention of making some short films. I'm about to finish up with my first short, however, I've noticed after a couple of months that the kit lens (although being a greater starter to introduce me to DSLR filmaking) just won't do anymore..and I've thought about it and decided to invest in two new lenses.
My budget isn't crazy, maximum I'm willing to spend is $500.
I've looked into the 35mm 1.8g as well as the 50mm 1.8g, both of which I can get within my budget..
I'll be mostly shooting indoors for now, so I do realize I don't want to exceed the 50mm..
Any suggestions for lenses? What are your thoughts on the 35mm 1.8g & 50mm 1.8g?
Should I invest in any other equipment? I have already purchased a tripod.
Thank you in advance for your time everyone! It is very much appreciated, from one filmmaker to another..again thank you!
